Co-Curricular Activities (CCAs)

Students participating in co-curricular activities

CCAs are an integral part of our students’ holistic education. Through CCA, students discover their interests and talents while developing values and competencies that will prepare them for a rapidly changing world. CCA also promotes friendships among students from diverse backgrounds as they learn, play and grow together. Participation in CCA fosters social integration and deepens students’ sense of belonging, commitment and sense of responsibility to school, community and nation.

Every secondary school student takes part in one CCA taken from the following options:

Students who are keen on an activity not offered in school may seek the school’s approval to start their own activities. This gives students the chance to pursue their specific interests or ideas, and expands the range of activities available in school.

A Holistic Education for Secondary School Students - LEAPS 2.0

As part of its efforts to provide students with a holistic and well-rounded experience in the co-curriculum, the Ministry of Education (MOE) will implement an updated LEAPS framework, LEAPS 2.0, starting with Secondary 1 students from 2014. The updated framework will enable schools to better align their co-curriculum to encourage students’ holistic development in terms of life skills, competencies and values.

For more information on LEAPS 2.0, please refer to the press release and the attached LEAPS 2.0 document.
